Hello All, I have a broken old IBM T42 Thinkpad Laptop and was wondering if there was a replacement motherboard for it that would allow me to put completely new parts in it. I like the case of this laptop a lot more than the new Thinkpad cases. From what I remember it was also pretty popular when it came out.
So again I am not looking to buy a new laptop, I a wondering if there are any upgrade options at all for my old computer.
Brand: IBM Thinkpad -Model: T42 -Bought From/Price: Craigslist, $120 -OS: Windows XP -CPU: Pentium M 1.8 Ghz -GPU: Ati Radieon mobility 7500 -Resolution: 1024x800... I think? 15" display I am pretty sure. -RAM: 1024 Mb -Usage:(Gaming, Internet, Office Apps, General computer applications) -Real World Battery Life (in your estimation): 4 hours -Your Rating (out of 10): Old but defiantly really great 8/10 if you discount the old technology in it.

light it on fire and run
My shops used to sell T40/41/42 s..
No upgrade I am afraid apart from some extra ram... too old for anything else...
Good lappies in their time though, but that was 10 years ago...
